Living in a new reality without our person confronts all kinds of feelings about who we are now, without them.
We are truly exhausted physically, but mentally, we are stronger and happier than ever.
How have you been doing? How’s your mental health and wellbeing?
Thank you so much for being patient with us, normal posts will return soon!
At the moment, I am dealing with stress through art! It has been wonderful to explore an old hobby that I gave up when Mum passed away.
Recently, I have been feeling a deep set loneliness encasing my heart, keeping her far from everyone else. Mother’s Day slowly appears in the future, and I begin to get afraid.
I don’t feel fear like I used to. I’ve learnt that the only thing that you can actually count on in this life is, in fact, change. I don’t try and run away from it anymore; running away takes up too much energy anyway. It’s easier to face it straight on, embrace it, and jump.
Crocuses are the ultimate symbol of hope and the importance of carrying on, in my opinion.
We never expected to feel so supported by your comments of encouragement or simple “me too” messages or a “hang on in there, it does get better”. Knowing other people were able to survive such loss gave me hope and shined a light on a future that I thought I’d never be able to attain after losing our mum.
